  • Beyond the Center: New Spatial Axes in International and Transnational
           Women’s Histories
    • Abstract: The articles in this issue explore new spatial configurations in international, transnational, and national women’s history outside the centers of the West. They demonstrate the interpretive power of methodologies that explore sites of interconnections seen through experiences in Asia, Iran, colonial India, and the Queensland colony of Britain. Two articles address new political options opened by the structures of international governance and treaty making under the League of Nations. The next article, on the international birth control movement, reflects a similar methodological concern with the processes of translation into local idiom while another contribution continues the rewarding exploration of ...

  • International Feminism from an Asian Center: The All-Asian Women’s
           Conference (Lahore, 1931) as a Transnational Feminist Moment
    • Abstract: Women’s South-South encounters of the first half of the twentieth century, although often curtailed as “regional” rather than “international,” are testimony of pronounced and distinct transnational feminist networks formed by women activists, writers, editors, and educators throughout the Asian, African, and Latin American continents as well as the Pacific Rim.1 Acknowledging that geographical location featured centrally in the formation of women’s associations and conferences all over the world, recent scholarship on transnational feminist organizing in the Global South identifies the intricately interwoven history of Global Southern and Western international women’s movements of the interwar period ...

  • Human Trafficking and Intra-Imperial Knowledge: Adopted Daughters,
           Households, and Law in Imperial Japan and Colonial Taiwan, 1919–1935
    • Abstract: After the Qing (1683–1895) established Taiwan, located near southwestern China, as a Han Chinese settler island, it became Japan’s first formal colony in 1895 and remained under Japanese control until 1945. In 1932–1933, a Japanese colonial court decision at the intersection of the Taiwanese family, colonial law, and popular debate marked a turning point in the prevention of human trafficking.1 A Taiwanese adoptee named Dong Jian, who a Japanese lawyer represented, sought the dissolution of her adoptive relationship with Ms. Dong Duan, claiming that Duan coerced Jian into prostitution. After a full year of deliberations, the Court of Re-Appeals (J: kōtō hōin jōkoku bu) confirmed that Dong had indeed coerced ... Read More

  • Margaret Sanger in Translation: Gender, Class, and Birth Control in 1920s
           China
    • Abstract: In April 1922, Margaret Sanger (1879–1966), the firebrand American birth control pioneer, spent three weeks in China while en route by steamer from Japan to England, stopping over long enough to deliver public lectures in Beijing and Shanghai. Although brief, Sanger’s visit launched a flurry of coverage in Chinese newspapers and periodicals, introducing urban Chinese audiences to neo-Malthusian theories on the importance of limiting population growth according to eugenic principles, as well as disseminating practical contraceptive information. Professor Hu Shih (1891–1962), liberal philosopher, advocate of vernacular literary reform, and one of China’s most famous public intellectuals, translated Sanger’s ... Read More

  • The Role of Petitions in the Mobilization of Women for the Right to Vote:
           The Case of Queensland, Australia, 1894, 1897
    • Abstract: “What should the women of Queensland do to show they want the franchise'” Emma Miller asked the Queensland premier. As part of a deputation, the feisty Labour suffragist continued: “Why should women be taxed, and not have a voice in sending in representatives'” She then referred to the petition of 1894 with “7000 signatures.”1 Mass petitions were understood as a way of developing and proving public support for political positions.2 In different parts of the globe, by the 1890s, feminists were beginning to focus on the vote, as both a powerful symbol of equality as well as an instrument of reform.3 Understanding how petitions are presented to parliament and the impact of petitions clarifies how women’s ...

    • Abstract: In the summer of 1905, girls and women at Mukti Mission in Maharashtra, India—in the remote village of Khedgaon—experienced something profoundly new to them. Hindu widows, many of whom were high-caste, converted to Christianity under the leadership of the high-caste (Chitpavan Brahmin) widow and social reformer, Ramabai Dongre Medhavi (1858–1922). Widely known by the honorific title of Pandita Ramabai, in 1883 she converted to Christianity while studying in England. Other non-high-caste widows reached Mukti Mission through Ramabai’s famine relief efforts, although, like their high-caste counterparts, they were socially outcast. The summer of 1905 brought to Mukti’s inhabitants what Sunderbai Powar, Ramabai’s ... Read More

  • Spousal Equality in Baha’i Law: The Emergence of Provisions on the
           Dissolution of Marriage in Iran, 1873–1954
    • Abstract: Although the Baha’i religion was intimately linked to the Babi religion, a messianic movement rooted in Shi‘i Islam in Iran, its stance on women’s rights contrasted sharply with prevailing norms on the status and role of women in the Middle East. Founded in the mid-nineteenth century by Mirza Husayn ‘Ali Nuri Baha’u’llah (1817–1892), a Persian of noble birth, the Baha’i religion proclaimed equality of the sexes as a fundamental spiritual, moral, and social principle. In accordance with this principle, Baha’i law aimed to foster and secure the full equality of marriage partners. In comparison with Islamic law and practice, this was most notably illustrated by the following Baha’i laws and ordinances: ... Read More

  • Intimacy and Emotions Across the European Empires
    • Abstract: Two decades ago, the historian and anthropologist Ann Stoler revolutionized the study of empire by highlighting the centrality of intimacy to the construction, management, and contestation of imperial power. Her work began from the proposition that the “domains of the intimate”—sex, childrearing, relations with servants, cultivation of sentiments, and so on—were crucial sites in which colonial administrators and settler families produced and enforced class and racial categories and hierarchies. This argument has inspired scholars to look beyond the more traditional depictions of imperial power as coherent, metropole-based, and manifested mainly through overt violence, instead exploring how the organization ...

  • Intimacy in the Early United States
    • Abstract: Before she died, Martha Washington burned all the correspondence she had exchanged with her husband George. Historians have long been accused of invading the privacy of men and women of the past: reading their mail, exposing their secrets, and airing their dirty laundry. Martha Washington, for one, protected herself and her husband from the prying eyes of future historians. Their public personas might endure but Martha Washington did what she could to shut the door firmly on her own and George’s private lives. We are left outside, guessing. As Martha Washington divined, Americans of the early republic cared not only about their own intimate relationships, but often also a great deal about the ... Read More

  • Gender Roles in Transition Across the Globe
    • Abstract: At the end of the nineteenth century, middle-class women in Europe and the United States began to challenge traditional gender roles that relegated women to the private sphere of marriage, motherhood, and domesticity. They demanded the right to attend universities, enter professional workspaces, and—eventually—participate in the political arena. Although the First World War interrupted women’s struggle, at the end of the war they continued to press their claims for a place in the public sphere. A great deal of outstanding scholarship has addressed many aspects of both generations of these New Women as they challenged gender roles rooted deeply in social convention, government policy, legal structures ...

  • Remembering Susan Groag Bell
    • Abstract: In January 2016, the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University hosted a conference celebrating the achievement and ongoing influence of Susan Groag Bell’s scholarship in the field of women’s history. A group of men and women who knew and worked with Susan for more than three decades organized the conference held on January 25, 2016, which would have been her ninetieth birthday.1 Together, the six talks that follow this introduction laid out the contours of Susan’s scholarship, charting the development of the field of women’s history through the work of one of its earliest and most intriguing practitioners. Born in the Sudetenland in 1926, Susan and her mother fled to England ... Read More

  • How the Field Was Won: Susan Groag Bell and Women’s History
    • Abstract: I first met Susan Bell in the fall of 1973, when I had just arrived at Stanford; she, Karen Offen, and I were preparing a joint presentation at the December annual meeting of the American Historical Association. That session stood at something of a turning point in the life course of European women’s history and the historical profession, for there were a mere two sessions on European women’s history: ours and another on socialism and feminism. There were, oddly, none in American women’s history, which was much more advanced than European at that moment in time. The six women on our panel were a hefty percentage of the women on the entire conference program, as the profession was just beginning to crack open ... Read More

  • An Unforgettable Collaboration: Women, the Family, and Freedom
    • Abstract: Dear Susan, . . . where does one begin in describing our collaboration since 1971' The beginning was inauspicious. Having discovered Susan’s lectures on women’s history, which she gave through our local community college, I decided to attend—with my small daughter. That was, of course, a mistake, and when little Catherine began crawling around the floor and twanging the doorstoppers, Susan briskly but kindly asked us to leave. But we arranged a subsequent meeting to discuss her projects and mine, and from there a fast friendship ensued. I provided some advice and also some suggestions for items to include in Susan’s anthology, Women: From the Greeks to the French Revolution (1973); I also encouraged Susan to ... Read More

  • Susan Bell’s Contributions to Autobiography
    • Abstract: Today, everyone in America seems to be writing a memoir—the young, the old, men and women, the celebrity, and the first-time author. This was not the case when Susan Bell and I began to teach autobiography some thirty years ago and edited a collection of essays, titled Revealing Lives: Autobiography, Biography, and Gender, that were based on the conference we organized through the Clayman Institute at Stanford University in 1986.1 The very title of our collection reveals a difference between then and now. Sue and I agreed that “autobiography” was the right term for a retrospective account of one’s own life, in keeping with the linguistic convention established after the publication of Rousseau’s ...

  • Susan Groag Bell’s “Medieval Women Book Owners” After 35
           Years
    • Abstract: I first discovered Susan Groag Bell’s article, “Medieval Women Book Owners,” as a graduate student in the mid-1990s.1 Although I had not yet settled on a dissertation topic, I was broadly interested in women’s education and religious life and wanted to know what medieval women knew, which (for me) meant trying to determine what they read. At the time, historians viewed medieval intellectual life as presumptively “male.”2 That was about to change—books like Joan M. Ferrante’s study, To the Glory of her Sex: Women’s Roles in the Composition of Medieval Texts (1997); June Hall McCash’s edited collection, The Cultural Patronage of Medieval Women (1996); and Lesley Smith’s and Jane H. M. Taylor’s edited volume ... Read More

  • Susan Bell’s Christine De Pizan
    • Abstract: I first encountered Susan Bell’s work in a seminar on medieval women I took in 1983, as a senior at Wellesley College. Her article on Christine de Pizan had been out for several years and her path-breaking study of medieval women book owners was just off the presses—so fresh and new that the professor brought it to class like a recently rediscovered relic that deserved a certain degree of veneration.1 The Italian professor who taught this wonderful class, the Italian literary scholar Rachel Jacoff, has been a visiting professor a number of times at Stanford University; so, in some fundamental way, I feel that this experience (many years ago) and the community I joined (in 1996) have always been connected. ...

  • Susan Groag Bell’s Contributions to the History of Gardens
    • Abstract: From the moment I met her, I was aware of Susan’s passion for gardens. I encountered her in the spring of 1987, in my second semester of graduate school in history at Stanford University. I remember having lunch together at her Forest Avenue apartment in downtown Palo Alto, California, where she had photographs on the walls of gardens from her previous homes. Not long after, Susan moved into the Palo Alto, a distinctive high-rise building on Alma Street, where she lived until she died. There she had oranges and geraniums and orchids and violets on the loge, and there she patiently instructed me, a West Texas girl schooled in cacti, about more exotic flora, like the azalea bushes as large as buildings that I ...
